Romantic Do's

Women want romance from the men in their life. Men want sex, and to get it they've discovered they're supposed to be romantic, but they don't know how. Women think romance should be a surprise, a spontaneous unexpected gesture, so they can't tell their man exactly how to be romantic.

To add to the confusion of romance, many people believe that they're either romantic or they're not, as if being romantic is innate, a quality that you're born with. Nothing could be further from the truth.

You can learn to be romantic. To help, below is a list of romantic "do's." By adding one of them to your relationship, you will find an instant spark of romance. The more you add, the hotter your chemistry will be.

Romantic Do's

  • Say "I love you" when it isn't expected;
  • Make your partner number one;
  • Give without expecting anything in return;
  • Send your partner love notes;
  • Passionately kissing in public;
  • Want, not have to be romantic;
  • Have a sense of adventure;
  • Take the initiative in romance; and
  • Listen well, ask questions, and be interested in your partner.
